Born and raised in Orange County, California, Mark was the first of 5 children to his carpenter father and nurse mother. He enjoyed working with his dad during summer vacation, but resolved early in life to not follow him into the building trades. He found himself with a career in the printing industry, in the days before computers. Fortune smiled and Mark was working in the early days of computerized graphic arts, seeing the future they represented and getting an early start, as computers revolutionized the industry.
